Doug Adams joined an elite club on Thursday night, Oct. 8.

Adams, who has been involved in numerous local and state organizations, was named the 2020 Distinguished Citizen, the 77th person to receive the annual award. His presentation highlighted the Grow Wabash County annual dinner and meeting.

In addition, Halderman Farm Management and Real Estate Services was named the 2020 Business of the Year, and North Manchester resident Jim Smith was named Grow Wabash County’s Volunteer of the Year for 2020.

Adams was introduced by 2019 Distinguished Citizen Bill Barrows, who dropped hints throughout his talk to the identity of the winner.

Barrows noted that throughout life, individuals have people who have helped mold their lives.

“In fact,” he said, “Our Distinguished Citizen for this year also was a mentor to me as a teen and young adult through example and actions.
